The article from Biology Letter follows and I added the slave training and bdsm lifestyle thoughts afterwards.
Women’s preference for dominant male odour: effects of menstrual cycle and relationship status
Body odour may provide significant cues about a potential sexual partner’s genetic quality, reproductive status and health. In animals, a key trait in a female’s choice of sexual partner is male dominance but, to date, this has not been examined in humans. Here, we show that women in the fertile phase of their cycle prefer body odour of males who score high on a questionnaire-based dominance scale (international personality items pool). In accordance with the theory of mixed mating strategies, this preference varies with relationship status, being much stronger in fertile women in stable relationships than in fertile single women

Maybe applies to slave training — but I’m not going without taking a bath
BDSM lifestyle & slave training: I would think dominant posture, attitude and behavior would play a far bigger role in eliciting submissive behavior and attraction than smell. I sure hope I can bath before seeking out a beta slave to start training as a slave girl.
However, I am sure that because of the evolutionary process smell does play some role both in the behavior of males and females. That would only makes sense. Some aspects of Evolutionary Psychology are interesting. It seems that we can’t outgrow all our primal urges and maybe we should not even try. We are here because of them. Some primal urges may be at the core of slave training, Master/slave relationships and bdsm scene play, (anyway, more to follow on this at a later date).
What are your thoughts on primal urges such as smell, attraction and submission?

His images and those of China Hamilton are scattered throughout the site. Derek’s images remind me of the image art of China albeit different in lighting expression.
